Foundations of Buddhism: Exploring the Practice of Meditation and Early Teachings of the Buddha

Dr. Amelia Hall

November 8–10, 2019

Tuition $150 + 2 nights

This program has been cancelled. This weekend will explore the core tenets of Buddhism for those who are interested in establishing a meditation practice as well those who have a current practice but want to learn more about the foundational philosophy and view of this tradition. What did the Buddha teach about walking a spiritual path? About the nature of our thoughts and emotions? How do we apply this wisdom in our everyday lives? This weekend will be a combination of talks on foundational Buddhist teachings, periods of meditation instruction, and group discussion. All are welcome, but this is especially for beginners.
